Make no mistake about it. Carlson has thrown down a gauntlet, and ordinary Catholics are going to be asking about Kennedy, and Mikulski, and Pelosi.

What's more, they're going to be asking their bishops why they don't do what Carlson has done to these public figures.

Things could get very interesting for Catholic Democrats.

Gotcha.

Gray Davis doesn't get a pass evidently:

Bishop William Weigand of Sacramento was the first American bishop to use the new note from Rome. At a pro-life Mass on January 22, he spoke of California Governor Gray Davis's claim to be a "pro-choice Catholic."

After describing the efforts by Davis's pastor to get the governor to see the moral incoherence of his position, Weigand declared, "As your bishop, I have to say clearly that anyone--politician or otherwise--who thinks it is acceptable for a Catholic to be pro-abortion is in very great error, puts his or her soul at risk, and is not in good standing with the Church. Such a person should have the integrity to acknowledge this and choose of his own volition to abstain from receiving Holy Communion until he has a change of heart."

Russ Lopez, a spokesman for Davis, responded with the hilarious and deeply revealing complaint that Bishop Weigand was "telling the faithful how to practice their faith."

Carlson is not Teddy's bishop. Let's hope that Teddy's bishop grows a backbone. (I won't hold my breath, however.)

They all get a pass. That is the problem I have with my New England Democrat relatives. Patrick Kennedy is pro abortion and my Catholic relatives back him. They actually work for his election. I confronted them before the last election.
It is something I will never understand.
